Lessons Learned from the Indonesian Western and Central Pacific Yellowfin and Skipjack Tuna Pole and Line FIP
Abstract:In 2017, the Indonesian Western and Central Pacific Yellowfin and Skipjack Tuna Pole and Line Fishery Improvement Project (Tuna PL FIP) was launched. Its purpose is to address overexploitation of marine fisheries by mainstreaming sustainability in the fisheries supply chain. Stakeholder in this ongoing Project include fishers who are members of the Indonesian Industry Association for Pole and Line and Handline Tuna Fisheries (AP2HI), the International Pole and Line Foundation (IPNLF), and the Ministry of Marine Affairs and Fisheries (MMAF). The Tuna PL FIP journey provides an opportunity for fisheries stakeholders to extract lessons learned and identify the potential for replication and scaling up. This document provides ten essential lessons for fishing communities, scientists, and development workers.
